Special installation at the University Art Museum: Ambra Polidori

The University Art Museum is showing a newly acquired work by Mexican artist Ambra Polidori (b. 1954) that challenges official evasions and inactivity around the 2014 disappearance of forty-three students in the Mexican state of Guerrero. The work has been sensitively installed by Juanita Rodriguez Congote, a doctoral student in the Department of History, in a way that also invites participation via the museum’s Facebook page as a digital parallel to the original’s sharable postcard format. There will be a gallery talk on the installation. Watch the museum’s Facebook page for details.
